As well as loving and being inspired by Japan magazine & book page layouts- Japan food, drink & product packaging has their very own level of cool. Packs are covered in bright colours, kawaii characters & a mixture of Japan Hiragana and Kanji.
I can normally be found at my local city Asian supermarkets running down the aisles snapping photo's saying "kawaii" with some 'oooo's and aghs'.
Their designs always get me so inspired that I just had to illustrate two of my favourites from my....Japan packaging collection (see above).
Caramel corn, noodles & biscuits never looked so good!
It's all about Typography placement & patterns
Japan packaging can even inspire shop interior design & coin banks, as seen at Tokyo store Kevin Millcu.
